worry in the great words of the vice president, the middle class has been buried for four yoors. i think what has changed is not statistics out of d.c. it's the perception in the states what people think. >> but that's been a bright point, chuck. we've seen people feel better about the economy. >> and especially in certain places, like in ohio, like in virginia where the economy has performed better than the national average. but you know, it is this, you know, the obama campaign, that their belief in this has been since the sort of bill clinton explanation of digging out of this hole, has been that ultimately the last sliver of swing voters is going to say okay, let's not change horses in mid stream. they're making a classic incumbent case of saying it's not great, but, hey, do you want to start over? and i go back, i remember watching a couple of focus groups, there was one out in nevada with working women and one woman said i'm not happy with obama. i'm not happy with the economy. but god, i don't want to have to start over. there's this perception.
